The Surefire Scout light has become a favorite of law enforcement, military shooters, as well as gun owners looking for a good quality rail mounted light with minimal bulk. Now there may be a new kid on the block, the M600IB Scout Light. The Scout series can trace its lineage back to when special forces had just begun to embrace red dot sights (an add-on that is considered standard now) and Surefire identified a niche in the market that needed to be filled.
Over the years the Scout light has morphed into a 600 lumen beast of a weaponlight that enjoys being regarded as one of the most durable in the world. The new M600IB scout light has bumped the light output from the previous 500-lumen output found on the M600 Ultra to a blinding 600-lumen auto adjusting beam on the new model.
The Intellibeam technology that Surefire borrows from the highly regarded P3X Fury light allows a shooter to activate the light without fear of being blinded by splashback or shining the light into a mirror. The M600IB scout light looks to be a perfect replacement for those of you that are looking for an ultra high output light that won’t take up a ton of room.
Even though we aren’t The Flashlight Blog, I still would love to get my hands on one of these rail-mounted badasses so that I can compare it to the Streamlight ProTac Rail Mount 2.
